After-School Enrichment Classes Fall 2019

After-School Care is available for all students on a drop-in basis before and after all clubs and classes. Parents may pick up their students and wait and return for class, or their student may sign into After-School Care before and after their class.

  • For classes beginning at 3:30 pm, there is no additional charge.
  • For classes beginning after 3:30 pm, regular After-School fees apply before and after the class.
  • You are welcome to pick up your student after school and stay on campus, work on homework or have a snack. If you stay at the Lower School campus, we ask that you head to the Dino Island play area by the lunch tables outside the Kindergarten (K2) classroom.
  • Students not picked up at the end of class will automatically be checked in to OOS After-School Care.
